CNY Solidarity members and supporters: This week we expect the House of Representatives to send the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate, which has a constitutional duty to try cases of impeachment. We need to pressure the Senate to call witnesses and conduct a real trial, not a whitewash. This week’s action alerts also focus on preventing war in Iran and the Women’s Marches in Syracuse and Seneca Falls this weekend.
Please find below the weekly ACTION ALERTS from Indivisible NY24 and our legislative action teams.
